Driver suffers serious injuries when pinned in truck-car crash

Drivers of passenger vehicles should be cautious when sharing the road with large trucks. Since these rigs are often traveling at significant speeds with the driver focused on getting to a destination, it is easy to get caught in the wrong place at the wrong time and have a truck-car crash. Because passenger vehicles are so much smaller, the occupants can suffer serious injuries and fatalities in these accidents. This can cause a series of personal and financial problems as the victims try to recover or the family left behind tries to move on.

A collision between a large truck and a car sent both drivers to the hospital in a recent incident. The accident occurred at around 10 a.m. on a freeway ramp. The vehicles were heading west and merging from one interstate road to another. The car, a Mitsubishi sedan, was pinned against the side of the freeway. The man driving it was taken to the hospital and reported to have suffered major trauma. The truck driver had minor injuries. The investigation as to how the accident happened in ongoing. An image of the crash shows the car's undercarriage on the divider between the road and a grassy area.

Trucks are considered dangerous for myriad reasons. There are frequently blind spots on the sides of the vehicles and the driver might not see other nearby vehicles. Making a turn or drifting into another lane can result in a motor vehicle accident. It is not uncommon for cars to be crushed when they are hit by large trucks, causing spinal cord damage, brain trauma, broken bones and more. Drivers of smaller vehicles can lose their lives in these accidents. A key to recovering is getting the necessary care. This might require surgery, rehabilitation and other treatments. A legal filing is often the only way to attempt to cover for these expenses, lost wages and the dramatic changes that come about after such an accident.

After crash in which it is not immediately known what caused the incident, having a comprehensive investigation may be vital. In this accident, the injured person and his family should consider their options. They may benefit from getting more information about truck-car accidents and legal options.
